Come to the Hard Rock for this nerd-glam wedding, stay for the s'mores bar #Wedding Porn#brooch bouquet#chicago#illinois#LEGO#movies#s'mores August 28 | Chris Wolfgang mswolfgang Photos by: Tuan H. Bui Photographer Photos by Tuan H. Bui, Photographer Chelle and Dave's wedding at Chicago's Hard Rock Hotel may look all glitz and glamour, but we got the inside scoop about the nerdiness that lurked below. (Thanks, Naturally Yours Events!) A good friend officiated the wedding, and guests filled out crossword-puzzle programs. A game-loving couple, Chelle and Dave sprinkled lots of other much-beloved faves throughout their wedding and reception. Keep your eyes peeled for LEGO and '80s movies references. Of course, you'll want to take note of the non-nerdy details too. Chelle's brooch bouquet is full of heirloom pieces pitched in by family members. And that delectable-looking s'mores bar? I was told the couple's signature s'more was built with champagne marshmallows, raspberry dark chocolate, and gingersnap cookies.
